Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Algebraic model

An equation that relates variable quantities associated with phenomena being studied

• Arrow

The notation PQ denoting the directed line segment with initial point P and terminal point Q.

• Complements or complementary angles

Two angles of positive measure whose sum is 90°

• Composition of functions

(f ? g) (x) = f (g(x))

• Constant term

See Polynomial function

• Cosecant

The function y = csc x
